Bindi shared the news via an Instagram post, where she confirmed she welcomed her first baby with husband Chandler Powell on Thursday – which was also their first wedding anniversary date.

In the caption, she revealed that her daughter’s name is Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. The name “Grace” comes from her great-grandmother and “Warrior Irwin” is for her late father, Steve Irwin.

“Our gracious warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother and Chandler’s family members dating back to the 1700s, ”she wrote. “His middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my father and his legacy as the most incredible wildlife warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul, just like her father.

Bindi previously revealed that the couple waited to meet the baby before deciding on his name, but they had already started calling him “Baby Wildlife Warrior.”

“My dad was the first person to come up with the term ‘Wildlife Warrior’,” she explained. “To be a wildlife warrior means to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. “

This isn’t the only tribute Bindi has paid her father throughout her pregnancy – she even recreated a photo of Steve and his mother in her third trimester.

Congratulations to the new family!
